I buy them by mail order as plugs and grow them on indoors until June when I put them out onto my sunny west facing patio. This was them being potted on in early summer.
One of our favourite meals is choritzo with butter beans, mushrooms and tomatoes, a recipe my daughter came up with when she was at medical school. We had a few lovely warm days last week to enjoy some late sunshine and with this dinner I decided to try the last new Pimm's I saw in the supermarket. This time it is not the usual base, which lemonade is added to, but a cider base. It really is a lovely mix.
So this is a photo of probably one of our last evening meals in the garden this year. We are able to eat lunch outside from March til October but by 7pm now it's too dark and chilly.
My challenge piece today is a tag and was inspired by the colours of that late summer dinner and golden leaves of my little pot acer in the sunshine.
I made an inky and stencilled background
Lots of autumnal colours on my leaves and a mist of gold ink. I added little gems to represent dew drops and the spider was a fun charm I recently added to my charms stash. I edged the whole of the tag with gold embossing powder.
